On January 24, 2009, Dr. Stubblefield and the forensic science majors were pleased to welcome back Mr. Adam Stubson, graduate class of 2007, for a presentation about the St. Paul Bureau of Criminal Apprehension crime laboratory. Adam spoke in the conference room of the new Forensic Science Teaching Laboratory, none of which existed was completed when he left the program. The students had many questions for him regarding his experience at the BCA, and the path he took to employment there. After finishing his Forensic Science degree, Adam worked for about a year as a contract chemist at 3M. He was watching for openings at the BCA lab and was prepared when his forensic biology position became available. The students and director of the Forensic Science Program would love to host any other alumni out there who would like to share their career experience. Please contact Dr. Stubblefield for more information!
What students said about the presentation:
"I had asked Adam about being specifically a crime scene investigator at the BCA and he explained that the BCA has already trained personnel in other areas on call for certain time periods, but Minneapolis or Anoka have their own crime scene units. I found this very helpful because I will be job searching soon and it's tough to know where to look!"
